Functional Medicine Coach Inver Grove Heights MN Happy Smiling Man

Are you trying to find the root cause of any HEALTH issues like gut issues, hormone imbalances, low energy, weight gain or weight loss, anxiety or depression, cognitive decline, OR ANY OTHER HEALTH CONCERNS?

You may benefit from Functional Medicine Labs and one-on-one Coaching with Dr. Ryan.

Comprehensive Lab Testing + Review

Insurance doesn’t cover these types of comprehensive tests and services, so most doctors don’t go past symptoms and “typical medical approaches” in Western medicine. Which is why “Functional Medicine / Nutrition” doctors and approaches to focusing on “CAUSE based” functional labs and functional nutrition and lifestyle coaching exist.

Most of the comprehensive lab testing we have available can be shipped directly to your house, done from home, and shipped directly to the labs.

For comprehensive blood work, we will find a local blood draw location for you to visit that can draw your blood and work with the lab for you.

What is Functional Medicine?

Functional Medicine, or Functional Nutrition, is a different approach to HEALTH RESTORATION. We take a “SYSTEMS” approach to addresses underlying causes of health issues by using a set of lab assessment tools for different health systems (ex. Gut Microbiome, Hormone Levels, Bloodwork) and utilize natural protocols that focus on the optimal functioning of the body systems and its organs.

Traditional medicine is “symptom-based”, which mostly treats symptoms and acute-care with medicine, wait until it gets worse and surgeries for conditions and diseases.

Functional Medicine, or functional nutritional practitioners like Dr. Ryan, will start with a detailed consultation and health assessment (including lifestyle evaluation). Typically followed by any necessary comprehensive labs to assess and help determine any “HIDDEN” issues in your physiology are, and then make recommendations to help RESTORE your physiology with natural methods like herbal and nutrition protocols, whole-foods, and lifestyle changes to balance the physiology.

If major clinical symptoms have already been diagnosed, then the goal is to still balance the physiology while being mindful of the clients’ symptoms and toxicity levels.

The idea is that as the body’s systems and physiology has the capacity to heal, balance and even fully restore as long as you nurture the body properly for a long enough period of time to allow for the health inside you to express itself.

Dr. Ryan’s Custom Healing Protocols

He has over 12 years of extensive training and utilization of functional medicine protocols to improve gut health, balance hormones and body chemistry physiology using natural herbal therapies, organic whole food based nutritional supplementation and lifestyle modifications.

After a thorough consultation, assessment, and any necessary lab work. Dr. Ryan will make custom recommendations for you to help RESTORE your physiology with natural methods like herbal and nutrition protocols, whole-foods, and lifestyle changes to balance the physiology.

Health Consulting + Coaching

After the discovery process of your initial consultation, assessment, lab work and review of test results has been completed, the typical client will work with Dr. Ryan for 3-4 months meeting on average once per month (virtual or in-person) to help restore their health. You may want or need more time to work on restoring health issues and work through all the systems you want to ensure are healthy and optimized.
